This is an image I took on my last day of teaching. I taught the day, packed my stuff, and walked away from an 18-year career that I loved. The school was wonderful. Administration was supportive. I had a great group of students.
Education and classroom instruction has seen many changes over the years. The expectations, administrative tasks, and teaching challenges were becoming too much for my stress management. It was time for a change.
I left the classroom and stepped into a learning and development role. Over these three years, the role has changed and grown, and I have been able to shape it into a job that incorporates technology and creativity, as well as instruction. I really love what I do and have a manager who guides me in my weakest areas and allows me to use my strengths. I’m thankful that my husband helped me figure out the skill set transfer. I am thankful for a manager who was willing to take a chance on a teacher, even when others weren’t as certain. I’m thankful for a company that has let me be a part of their learning program and have input.
Happy Thursday. I’m looking forward to reading all of your Thankful Thursday posts this evening. Comment or Linky Link below and I’ll stop by!
Live life. Give joy. Be at peace.
